Former Arsenal football star and pundit Paul Merson has named Man Utd coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the luckiest coach in Europe.
This comes after Man Utd suffered an embarrassing defeat to Liverpool in a 5-0 scoreline im the premier league over the weekend at Old Trafford.
However, despite clamours for the sack of Ole at Old Trafford, the Red Devils board has left the Norwegian to remain in charge at Old Trafford.
For this reason, Merson declared Solskjaer as the luckiest coach in Europe as he stressed that no big club in Europe would allow a coach to remain at the club after a 5-0 scoreline.
Merson told Sky Sports: “I don’t like seeing any manager get the sack, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very fortunate to still be in a job. He’s as lucky as you can become as a manager.”
“I don’t care what anybody says, but if any other manager at any other club in Europe lost 5-0 at home to your biggest rivals, the manager is gone. If Chelsea or Arsenal lost 5-0 at home to Tottenham, the manager would do well to still be there on Monday morning.”
Merson noted that the Red Devils had won just one Premier League game in five, which isn’t acceptable, and yet the manager has still got a job.
